What Are Lens Treatments & Coatings?

Lens treatments are added layers applied to existing lenses, or are manufactured along with the lenses. They add features that enhance your vision or eye protection.

Lens treatments or coatings improve the performance of any kind of lens. Looking for tinted lenses, anti-reflective coating, UV protection or polarized features? Check out our selection!


Which Lens Treatments Are Best for You?

  • UV protection

    The UV rays in sunlight can be harmful to the eyes, and may increase your risk of cataracts, macular degeneration and other eye conditions. Lenses that block 100% UV help to ward off various eye conditions and damage.

  • Scratch resistant

    Scratches, while not likely to affect your lens performance, are an annoyance that can interfere with clear vision. That’s why you should always request scratch-resistant lenses (treatment) for your eyeglass lenses.

  • Anti-reflective

    For fashion, comfort and clarity, anti-reflective treatments are the way to go. They make the lens nearly invisible, and cut glare from headlights, computer screens and harsh lighting.

  • Photochromic

    Photochromic lenses automatically darken in bright light and lighten indoors, so you can enjoy eye protection anytime, anywhere – indoors and out!


Our Wide Range of Lenses

Selecting the right eyeglass lens depends largely on its function. From single-vision lenses to progressive polycarbonate lenses, we are happy to help you find what best suits your needs. At EyeCare Specialties of Colorado - Thornton, we have a full-service optical lab that produces your lenses with the latest state-of-the-art technology.

Great experience here! Dr. Riggs was awesome!!

Staff, especially Michael, were extremely helpful, friendly, and engaging. They were very patient wi... th me going over the best combination of benefits for my veteran and employment insurance. There is a large selection of frames to choose from and Michael explained to me the quality of each additional coating for glasses. The physician and tech were thorough, answered my questions in detail, and were timely with exams. I also like that frames are delivered directly to your house.

I wished they would assemble the glasses on location. It would make it even better

While the whole stave is wonderful and very helpful, Allie is the best. I had some insurance issues ... and she was helpful from the start. Dr. Riggs was wonderful as well. Took time to explain what he was seeing and wasn’t in any hurry to get out the door and onto the next patient he took his time and was very thorough. They even help exchange The lenses after a week of me, not being able to get used to them. I will be back for a pair of prescription sunglasses!

Awesome eye doctor office. Everyone was super helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Highly recommend...

Dr Joel Riggs was very patient and informative of the examination. I value the information of my eye... care and the staff was also accommodating and friendly.

This place is definitely a 4.8, not quite perfect, but definitely better than a 4 star review. Custo... mer service is really good, and the people there have a sense of humor as well as professionalism. The reason why they're not quite perfect is purely aesthetic. Some of the walls look like they need cleaning and a paint job, which can give off the wrong impression, but that's just surface level really. My experience here was top notch, again great customer service with staff that has a good sense of humor and seem like they care about your experience there. If you asked me if I'd return, I definitely would!

I have had glasses for all of my adult life, and have never been treated as well as I did here! Dr.... Riggs made me feel comfortable and empowered, giving me great insights and opinions on everything from lasek to cataracts. We also had a blast chatting about nerdy things and what the best sci-fi movies were. He's awesome! Not only was everyone super friendly, but it felt like I had an entire team to give me advice and help me choose the best glasses. That was above and beyond for me. My usual experience at any other eyeglass store has always been on my own, and because I don't know the ins and outs of glasses, I would usually just choose a pair that looked like my old pair did. At EyeCare Specialties of Colorado, I had an entirely new experience. The staff helped me break out of my mold (of always buying black framed glasses) and helped me to find a pair that matched my skintone and looked fresh (with colors and even sparkles)! It really felt like I was being cared for and had a team on my side to get me the perfect pair of glasses! (Thanks Steve and team!!!) This is the ONLY eye doctor and glasses location I will ever go to again!

Lens Treatments FAQs

Are my glasses already scratch-resistant?

Many lenses today made of polycarbonate materials already have scratch-resistant features built in. However, most lenses are made of a resin known as CR-39, which doesn’t automatically include any lens coatings, so if scratch-resistance is important to you, ask your optician to confirm you are purchasing the right lenses for your lifestyle.

Do anti-fog glasses actually work?

If you wear glasses you already understand the frustration of seeing your lenses fog up as soon as you step inside from the cold. Small water droplets fog up your lenses when the surrounding temperatures are warmer than the lenses. Anti-fog coatings help prevent lenses from becoming cloudy no matter the weather.

Is anti-scratch coating on glasses worth it?

Even the best lens treatment can’t 100% guarantee that your lenses will never be scratched. However, the higher the quality of the coating, the better the protection.

Do I need polarized coatings?

Polarized coatings are anti-reflective, so they reduce glare from the sun, snow, water and pavement. If you plan to use your glasses around water or snow, these lenses let you see objects in sharper detail and can make colors look more vivid.
